Gallant operatives of the Nigeria Police Force have killed a dreaded bandit, Isa Dei-Dei, in Abuja, after storming the hideout of a bandit group in the suburb of the Federal Capital Territory.

This was disclosed in a statement by the spokesman of the Force, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi.

The police image maker in the statement on Wednesday noted that while only Dei-Dei was killed, some other members of the gang sustained bullet injuries.

He said, “At about 10:15 am on February 5, 2024, operatives of the DFI-IRT, acting on intelligence, got information on the hideout of a notorious bandit group led by one Isa Dei-Dei, in the suburb of the FCT, and immediately proceeded to the location for possible arrests.

“Upon closing in on them, they (bandits) sighted the police and fled. The operatives immediately went after them, which led to a fierce gun duel. In the process, the notorious Isa Dei-Dei was neutralised while other members of the syndicate managed to escape with gunshot injuries.

“We therefore urge members of the public, most especially medical practitioners, to call our attention to anyone or patients seen with gunshot wounds for further investigation.”
